Quality, Expert Care in a Respectful, Supportive Environment

The UCSF Breast Care Center, part of the UCSF Helen Diller Comprehensive Cancer Center, cares for patients with breast cancer and other breast health issues or concerns. We focus on screening for early breast cancer detection and on delivering more effective and less toxic therapies. We also conduct research that explores breast cancer's causes, biology and behavior, with the goal of developing even better prevention and treatment strategies.

Our team of surgeons, oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, psychologists and nutritionists work together to thoroughly address all your concerns. You will also have access to many support services, from meditation groups to exercise classes.

After you complete your cancer treatment, your care team will refer you to the UCSF Breast Cancer Follow-up Program. You will receive regular breast checkups as well as screening tests and lab evaluations as needed. We also work to address quality-of-life issues that may arise after treatment, such as dealing with the symptoms of chemotherapy-induced menopause, taking hormonal drugs or halting hormone replacement therapy, sexual issues, mood or sleep disturbances, nutrition questions and general well-being.
